Signal fidelity starts with probes
Enter a world of versatility with four FlexChannel® inputs. Browse your circuits with included 1 GHz, 10x probes. Connect high performance single-ended active probes or differential probes, or do both at once with new TriMode probes. Expand your view by connecting a TLP058 probe to any input and get 8 digital channels - up to 32 digital channels.
Make reliable, repeatable power quality, harmonics, switching loss, safe operating area measurements and more, with the automated power measurement and analysis. Save time with SPMI decoding and triggering. And rely on the 6 Series MSO low-noise performance for accurate evaluations of power supply noise.
Clocks are the heart of every embedded system and digital communication link. Jitter and other clock distortion can impact system operation, and getting to the root cause can be challenging without the right analysis tools.
Standard phase noise, TIE, and frequency plots and histograms
Optional advanced analysis with jitter decomposition and clock recovery
Systems depend on fast, reliable data transfer. And high speed digital standards rely on rigorous test procedures to ensure that reliability. Automated compliance testing software manages the whole testing process with the 6 Series MSO -- setup, making measurements, checking against standard limits, and generating thorough reports.
